WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE


I am working on getting my Microsoft Office Specialist Certification. It has been an amazing experience! The teachers are very knowledgeable, yet able to explain things on a level anyone can understand. They are committed to helping their students do whatever it takes to accomplish their goals. 

If you are looking for schooling that will work with your schedule, this is it. I am a single mother, and they have worked with my schedule and made this as simple as possible. I am very grateful for New Horizons.”

I came to NH through the WIOA program. Lisa Kelly is a fantastic advisor who helped me tailor a program that exactly met my needs. I enrolled in two classes, both taking advantage of the remote distance learning option using Adobe Connect. I attended both classes from my computer at home. The lessons are world class, and the instructors are subject matter experts in their fields. Both instructors really care about their students, and I am still in email contact with both. 

This is an organization that you can trust to help you hone the skills you need on the job or determine a course of study to launch you to the next level. I strongly endorse New Horizons. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

New Horizons Computer Learning Center environment setup was comfortable for learning and staff was helpful and friendly. Cassandra at the front desk was very helpful especially when I was struggling with the headsets used. 

The course content was excellent for the class that I was taking and the instructor was by far the best I've had for work related training. I will definitely be scheduling future training as this is a great place to grow my skillsets!

- Tomara Watkins

 


The personnel at New Horizons are for the most part very helpful and they are concerned with helping me get my CompTIA +A certification. I am confident that I will achieve the certification and become a bonafide technician.

New Horizons Computer Training Center of Nashville provided the learning environment to enhance my job skills to make me a viable candidate in the job market. Lisa Kelly, my Educational Consultant, provided the knowledge, support and encouragement to keep my course studies scheduled for a successful outcome. I really enjoyed the variety of learning scenarios., The 'live' classroom instructors and the 'online' instruction offered me a lot of flexibility in the scheduling of my courses. And, since the courses are recorded, I could use them over and over again during my review to be successful at test time. All staff members are very supportive and helpful.

New Horizons also provides job placement support and resources to help students build a professional resume and then they prepare us for interviews. Employers frequently inquire with the school for potential applicants thus giving New Horizons students an edge. I would highly recommend New Horizons Computer Learning Center of Nashville to anyone wishing to improve their career potential. They offer a mind-boggling array of I.T. courses in a beautiful scenic setting. 

My Education Consultant/Coordinator Shane was both knowledgeable and very professional in helping me understand what skill sets are set for growth and highly sought after by employers. Great settings and location are meaningless without a good system of delivering high-quality technical training to a variety of ways people respond to learning. I was sold when sampled them all, instructor-led, web-based, hands-on, recorded with access to instructors by chat, textbooks, and manuals online and PDF (e-books). Self-paced or follow along is there to choose from at will. All of my instructors are certified with real-world I.T. experience and are happy to explain and break down concepts without sounding condescending. 

What more could I ask for??? More equipment for hands-on. I have acquired some on my own cheap or free, which aid me in my quest for technical excellence.

I'm currently a student at New Horizons and I love it. Lisa Kelley was my education consultant and she has been awesome. I was out of work and not sure what direction I wanted to pursue. She made time to speak with me upon us meeting and has not lost touch since. She checks on me to be sure my classes are going well and being sure I don't need anything. 

My instructor Ms. Loretta is very knowledgeable and prompt which helps me with independent studies. They have a very professional learning environment and flexibility for those with families and jobs. I definitely made the right decision and would encourage one to join our school for endless opportunities.

As a former student of New Horizons Computer Learning Center of Nashville, I can’t say enough positive things about New Horizons. From the staff, my Education Counselor Lisa Kelley took the time to listen to what I was looking for then helped me choose which classes would be best for me given what I wanted to accomplish. The class instructor Loretta McDonald is extremely knowledgeable with multiple degrees, certifications, and years of experience in the field. She makes sure that everyone in class understands the course material and why it’s important to your healthcare career. Ms. Loretta creates a fun and relaxed environment that makes learning easier. 

However, the main thing about Ms. Loretta is that if you’re willing to put in the work and participate in the learning process she’ll be right there with you to answer your questions, to make sure you understand the course material and that you can pass the certification exam(s). New Horizons of Nashville has a 2-year career placement service that will help you in your job search and to help prepare you for a position after you’ve passed your exam(s). 

Tracy Sullivan is an awesome resource for the entire student body. She helped me rewrite my resume for the position I wanted instead of my previous position. Although, New Horizons does not guarantee job placement, New Horizons does provide you all the tools and resources you’ll need to find your next position. Everyone at New Horizons Nashville is 100% committed to helping you succeed, from the President to the IT Tech, other instructors, to the receptionists. The receptionist(s) will become one of your most favorite New Horizons staff member(s). They greet you with a big smile and an exuberant hello each morning, which helps your mental well-being, and for your constitutional well-being freshly baked chocolate chip cookies every day at 2:00 PM; just awesome. 

Again, check them out, I think you’ll be very pleased with New Horizons' approach to higher learning.

I love New Horizons!!! They have such a friendly and helpful staff. My education consultant, Jennifer Miller, has been amazing! I decided to get certified in Microsoft office and found them on a web search. It has been such a pleasant experience and I feel like I've really accomplished something! 

I started out with very little computer experience and now I'm finally feeling caught up with the rest of the world! I highly recommend New Horizons.  

- Amy Biggs

 


I have taken numerous classes New Horizons Nashville and couldn’t be happier. Jennifer Miller my account executive is awesome and extremely knowledgeable and caring. 

Jennifer’s knowledge in the process of setting me up with a plan and applying the GiBill towards my certification training was apparent from day one. I was out of work and trying to get back into IT after being out for 6 years and she had me hit the ground running. 

I am now employed with a lot of help from Tracy Sullivan on my resume and interview skills along with her numerous career contacts within Nashville I was able to get numerous interviews with the only problem being which job to take. The instructors are very knowledgeable and all the instructors I had answered any questions I had and kept the class on task. New Horizons gives you the tools to be successful and especially love the virtual server access when it comes to getting ready for a performance-based exam. 

The tools are given and along with that it is up to the individual to do their part and prepare for the exam by studying. You walk in the door and you feel welcome. Top veteran friendly company in my opinion.

- James Robertson

 


I had a great experience from start to finish with New Horizons Nashville. My rep Shane guided me through the process and was incredibly helpful and responsive. He was great at having everything ready to go (paperwork, instructions, etc). Everybody at New Horizons is friendly, knowledgeable and engaged. The staff was wonderful, friendly, and very customer/student oriented. 

I took the PMP Course and really liked my instructor, Clay McKenzie. I learned so much during the class. He made a very voluminous subject matter easy to understand and broken down into smaller sections. He was always available to us during breaks, lunch, or after class if we needed additional assistance. 

I would highly recommend anybody who is looking to add to their professional skills or certifications to check out New Horizons.

I spent nearly two months in the New Horizons Computer Learning Centers for five courses and got 3 certifications. So I can testify that New Horizons Nashville has the best team: very professional, kind and oriented for customer service. I have never had such an experience where employees were so willing to make me succeed. They all encouraged and supported me. 

The hardware works and the professors are very devoted to make you understand your software. So thank you all, you helped me so much!  

- Sandrine Thabeau-Russell

 


Great training classes and staff. They are always working with us to find the best training's for our staff.

- Joey Alexander

 


The learning environment and New Horizon's 'Blended Learning Methods', to me has been the most helpful. I want to commend everyone at New Horizon's Nashville center who have been part of my learning experience. 

And, Yes, Yes, Yes...I will definitely recommend this center for enhancing one's skills to add to your resume. P.S. --(Kim B. and LeGwen H...Thanks a whole bunch!!)

- Andrea Thomas

 


The classes are very interactive in person and remotely online. The instructors knew how to break down material in several ways to help me digest the material in a way I learn. The study guide and hands on activity software helped a lot.  

- Ashton Hobbs

 


Shane Willmon is an excellent educational consultant and very informative regarding my PMP information. The staff are thoughtful and always willing to help. Thank you for a good experience!

- Andrea Walker

 


My education consultant Shane Willmon helped me in ways that I never expected, and that I could never have done on my own. I worked for a company for 17 years. The last 5 remotely. New CIO cancelled work from home and I live 2 states away. As I started to look for work locally I realized that I needed education to fill some holes to make me employable in 'The Real World.' Shane listened. We agreed on a plan. 

He guided me and helped me find funding for a class I need to fill holes in my education. A real 'Class Act.'  

- Paul Nielander

 


New Horizons is a great school to get a new start. The staff is very supportive and the instructors are very knowledgeable and patient.  

- Ladonna Jackson

 


New Horizons has changed my life. I was an IT person stuck with nowhere to go. They took the time to talk to me, explain what was going on in the IT world, then told me what they could do to help. After starting classes, I leaned that I really wanted to go down a different path. I talked to them about it. They saw what I was seeing and changed my classes. Now I am in a job that I love, and happy. 

Thank you New Horizons. Without you all I would still be lost. If you want to learn, grow and just want a different job, please stop by and talk to them. They are wonderful people and they care.  

- John OMalley

 


Excellent school excellent staff always pleasant. Clean faculty. Jennifer is the best veteran advocate always has all the answers for me. Couldn’t have anyone else to better represent New Horizons. I will recommend New Horizons to all my fellow Veterans.    

- Corwin Reid

 


New Horizons Nashville is an extremely friendly and helpful IT learning facility. Shane Willmon has been instrumental in my working toward my MCSA certification and beyond. I would highly recommend this institution to those looking to improve their career opportunities. As a retired Soldier transitioning into the civilian workforce, the services offered at New Horizons Nashville have ensured my success.  

- Darrin Crowder

 


I was starting over after nearly twenty years in another industry when I discovered New Horizons. I'd always been technically savvy, and I've always been interested in the world of technology, so I reached out to them and met with an account representative just a few days later. From there, I took four classes to earn CompTIA certifications -- I learned as much in a six-month period as I had in the last few years at my previous job. The staff was friendly and helpful; the teachers were excellent -- the courses were intensive, but very interesting, and each prepared me to pass the certification exam. 

After I got my certifications, the job placement staff helped me update my resume and reach out to potential employers. Within a week, I had several job interviews, and within a month, I was employed as a Technical Analyst at an IT provider. 

Without the great staff of New Horizons, I might not have made the transition into a new and exciting job field. Thank you all!  

- Jeremy Witt

 


I was extremely satisfied with my experience at New Horizons. Lisa and Tracy were very helpful before, during, and especially after taking the class. I would highly recommend them for your training needs.  

- Danny Burns

 


A clean, friendly and professional environment that makes learning very easy! The staff treats you like family to ensure a positive training and learning experience. S. Willmon, T. Sullivan, L. Hamilton, Mrs. Kim, Chris and others are the best!  

- Perez Long

 


Wonderful and helpful staff. Awesome place for training and job placement. Highly recommend!!  

- Tracy Tramel

 


I was out of work and desperately looking for a job when Shane Willmon actually found me. I was at a job fair at a hotel near Briley Parkway. Shane introduced me to the WIOA program. When he told me I could get my certifications for free, I jumped on it! I have two certifications and working on the last one, which will give me my MCSD in software development. I've learned a lot studying the archived videos and can't wait to get my MCSD. New Horizons has been a blessing for me.

- Ray Levron


They are very friendly. Always helpful. I have learned so much here.

- Cheryl Mitchell


Quality certificate training, knowledgeable instructors, and helpful staff. Great place.  

- Michael Girard

- Kellye Hunter


I cannot speak highly enough about NH Nashville. 100%! A+, Network+, Security+, Project + and PMP Certifications. Thank you very much Jennifer Miller.

WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR INSTRUCTORS


Peter de Lastic, NHCentral

CompTIA IT Fundamentals+
"Peter was an excellent instructor. I didn't know what to expect at first, but after the first 2 hours day 1, this guy knows his stuff (to put it mildly). He used real life examples as they related to the subject matter, occasional humor, and was very time conscious. Kept things moving along, took more time for explanation when needed. I was a little ... no ... a lot disappointed when he said he was not teaching my next training. I hope to enjoy the next instructor as I did you. GREAT JOB SIR!!!!”

Charles Watkins, NHCentral

10961 Automating Administration with Windows PowerShell
"Charles provided a very engaging and genuinely upbeat atmosphere on a daily basis. He is obviously interested in the technology and wants to share that with his class, and that is clearly his goal throughout the week."

Lynn Trapp, NHCentral

ITIL4 Foundation
"Exceptional instructor, very knowledgeable and personal and approachable"

Mona Cross, NHCentral

Outlook 2016, Part 1
"When I logged in this morning, I was excited to see the Miss Mona was my instructor again. This is the third class that I have had with her, so I knew that it was going to be a great class!"

Eric Satterfield, NHCentral

Excel 2016, Part 1
"Eric did a great job instructing and making the class informative and fun!"

Dan Russell, NHCentral

PRINCE2 Foundation
"Dan did a good job and shared his knowledge of the subject and used real world examples to help us understand. I enjoyed the class."

Hamish MacFarlane, NHCentral

Excel 2016, Part 1
"Hamish MacFarlane was a very engaged instructor, encouraged questions, answered questions in a timely manner and made sure to tell everyone they were doing a great job and a few students who had issues with Excel, he helped them and made sure everyone else had something to practice in the meantime. I would take a class with him again.”

Charles Watkins, NHCentral

10985 Intro to SQL Databases
"Of the 4 New Horizons courses I've taken Charles was the best instructor. He made learning applicable to real world scenarios and presented the subject matter in a manner that made learning fun. I hope the next course I take through New Horizons is taught by Charles. His approach to teaching made the material stick as well as made me very comfortable with the topic."

Mona Cross, NHCentral

Time Management
"I think Mona was outstanding, I wish I had co-workers like her. She is a keeper.”

Emil Rodgers, NHCentral

10994 Data Analysis Fundamentals with Excel
"Excellent instruction for all learning levels. Great sense of humor that made him very relatable and easy to understand. I like how he explained the WHAT and the WHY in detail before the demonstrations, so I understood what the goal was. I've had instructors that just show what to click and that doesn't help at all if I don't understand why I am doing something. Emil was great at explaining all of that.”

Peter de Lastic, NHCentral

CompTIA IT Fundamentals+
"Pete was awesome. He shared great, relevant stories, real-world practical examples, and even some wisdom that was tangential to the class but gave a richer context for the material being studied. He has a nice sense of humor and made the class super enjoyable. Great instructor!"

Charles Watkins, NHCentral

10982 Supporting/Troubleshooting Windows 10
"Charles needs to be commended to the highest degree for his training abilities. Not only is he a technical Jedi, he is extremely personable. He kept our attention the entire time with his energetic personality, delightful banter and crowd participation.”

Brian Cochenour, NHCentral

MS-100 Microsoft 365 Identity and Services
"I was concerned about taking this class because the instructor in the prerequisite class talked over my head a lot. I appreciated that Brian explained everything clearly, in easy-to-understand terms for a novice and used a lot of visuals to help explain. That, along with his expert knowledge, make him an exceptional online instructor."

Karen Botwinik, NHCentral

Adobe Photoshop CC, Part 1
"Karen was amazing. As someone who had never used Photoshop before, Karen was super helpful and went at a fantastic pace. She answered all of my questions and never made me feel like I was silly for asking anything. She took the time to try and get to know each of us, which really helped make this feel like it was a team effort between all of the participants and the instructor. Overall, she made the experience more enjoyable than I could have imagined.”

Richard Morgan, NHCentral

55123 Writing Reports with Report Builder & SSRS
"Richie taught with enthusiasm, which is difficult in a normal setting, but I imagine even harder when teaching virtually. I was interested in what he had to say, and he held my attention. It was also clear that he knew exactly what he was talking about and was able to come up with examples that weren't shown in the text."

Jim Lifter, NHCentral

2016/2019 Data Analysis with Pivot Tables
"Awesome instructor! Hope to have him back for expert level excel classes!”

Emil Rodgers, NHCentral

20779 Analyzing Data with Excel
"Emil is a fantastic, engaging instructor who makes it easy to understand the material. He was very interactive with the labs and made it easier to understand.”

Charles Watkins, NHCentral

MD-101
"What I liked about Charles is he was very patient with questions, liked to provide value add comments and examples. I do wish he had done all 5 days, even though I thoroughly enjoyed Kirk."

Marty Shepard, NHCentral

SQL Querying Fundamentals, Part 2
"Marty is a very organized, polished trainer utilizing this method of teaching online. The class was on time, even with questions or issues. It was a great class."

Alan Harrah, NHCentral

CISSP
"Alan brought real world scenarios to the material. His method for remembering Symmetric Crypto was great. I can't forget it now. Thank you for that!!! That is just one of the many items in this class that he helped me look at in a different manner.”
